I am, without a doubt, a dog person, always have been and probably always will be. Dogs have always just had much more of an impact on my life, and I can remember a few dogs that my family had when I was growing up. I can't remember if we ever had a cat.
I quite like cats, I don't really have anything against them (other than a vague suspicion that they are plotting something behind my back), but in general I leave them alone and they pretty much leave me alone. Until now.
There are a couple of neighbourhood kittens that like to hang around my back yard. I'm sure they are twins, they are difficult to tell apart. They were both very small in the spring when I first noticed them, but they have grown up quite a bit and aren't as "kittenish" as they once were. I believe they both are strays and they don't belong to anyone in particular.
I can always tell when these two are in my back yard. The dogs next door go absolutely nuts, and this pair of felines can't get enough of the attention. They will sit quietly on the fence of my deck and stare at those poor dogs for up to an hour at a time. I can tell by the expression on their faces that they are highly amused by the commotion coming from next door, which only ends when the neighbour brings the distraught dogs inside. I think that these cats believe that this little ritual is part of their daily job, and they appear to get a lot of satisfaction showing up every day to carry it out. I admire the dedication that these two display towards their chosed profession as dog disturbers.
It won't be long now before I'm forced to consider giving these two a name, although I still don't know how I'm ever going to tell them apart.
